TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Glass

This pair of green glasses come from Empoli which is a region on the west side of Italy, southwest of Florence in the province of Tuscany. The Empoli region has been producing a distinctive green glass since the 14th century, the colour coming from iron deposits in the local area.

Through a glass darkly

I glimpsed in refracted light

My unfulfilled dreams
